We're more worried about this family of hooded orioles outside our back
window than we are about ourselves. Shot yesterday. There are actually 3
of them babies in there with their nest sewn using banana leaf strings
into the crook of a banana leaf. If we move to higher ground, we're
taking them with us. There's a nest in the banana leaf next to this one
with an egg the size of a dime in it. May they all survive.
Valin just looked out and saw mamma feeding the babies, and brother man,
this wind is picking up fer sure. That's hard to imagine that little bird
flying around getting food for dem babies.
our little baby birds made it ok, they were on the back of the house and even
though the wind was whipping that banana tree pretty good. I saw the mama
bird covering them completely at about midnight when I went for a walkabout.
